Description

This is a Continuation of application Ser. No. 08/239,416 filed May 6, 1994, now abandoned.

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a catalyst for catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxides using a hydrocarbon and/or an oxygen-containing organic compound as a reducing agent. More particularly, it relates to a catalyst for catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxides which is suitable for reduction and removal of harmful nitrogen oxides contained in emissions from factories, automobiles, etc.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Nitrogen oxides present in exhaust or emissions have been removed by, for example, a method in which the nitrogen oxides is further oxidized and then absorbed in an alkali or a method comprising reducing it to nitrogen by using ammonia, hydrogen, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, etc. as a reducing agent.

These conventional methods have their own disadvantages. That is, the former method requires a means for handling the alkaline waste liquid to prevent environmental pollution. Of the latter method, the method of using ammonia as a reducing agent involves the problem that ammonia reacts with sulfur oxides in the emissions to form salts, resulting in a reduction in catalyst activity. When in using hydrogen, carbon monoxide, or a hydrocarbon as a reducing agent, the reducing agent preferentially undergoes reaction with oxygen because oxygen is present in a higher concentration than nitrogen oxide in emission. This means that substantial reduction of nitrogen oxides requires a large quantity of the reducing agent.

It has recently been proposed to catalytically decomposing nitrogen oxides in the absence of a reducing agent. However, known catalysts for direct decomposition of nitrogen oxides have not yet been put to practical use due to their low decomposing activity.

On the other hand, H type zeolite, Cu ion-exchanged ZSM-5, etc. have also been proposed as a catalyst for catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxides using a hydrocarbon or an oxygen-containing organic compound as a reducing agent. In particular, H type ZSM-5 (SiO2 /Al2 O3 molar ratio=30 to 40) are regarded optimal. However, even the H type ZSM-5 is not deemed to have sufficient reducing activity. In particular, when the emissions have some water content, the zeolite structure is dealuminated, showing a sudden drop in its performance. It has thus been demanded to develop a catalyst for catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxides which exhibits higher reduction activity and shows a high durability even if the emissions have some water content.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

An object of the present invention is to provide a catalyst for catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxides using a hydrocarbon and/or an oxygen-containing organic compound as a reducing agent, which selectively catalyzes a reaction of nitrogen oxides with the reducing agent even in the presence of oxygen and particularly in the presence of oxygen and water content so that nitrogen oxides in emissions can be reduced efficiently without requiring a large quantity of the reducing agent and a high durability can be provided even in the presence of water content.

The present invention provides a catalyst for catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxides using a hydrocarbon and/or a oxygen-containing organic compound as a reducing agent, which comprises a cerium oxide supported on a solid acid carrier.

The present invention further provides a catalyst for catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxides using a hydrocarbon and/or an oxygen-containing organic compound as a reducing agent, which comprises:

(a) at least one element selected from the elements of Group Ib, Group IIa, Group IIb, Group IIIa, Group IIIb, Group IVa, Group IVb, Group Va, Group VIa, Group VIIa, and Group VIII in the Periodic Table (hereinafter referred to as the elements belonging to group (a)); and

(b) a cerium oxide, supported on a solid acid carrier.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The terminology "solid acid carrier" as used in the present invention means a carrier which is solid and acidic in a temperature at which the catalyst is used. Solid acidity can be confirmed by a temperature rise release method using ammonia or an in situ FTIR (Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometry) method using ammonia or pyridine. The solid acid carrier which can be used in the present invention includes zeolite type solid acid carriers and oxide type solid acid carriers.

The zeolite type solid acid carriers can be obtained by treating heat-resistant zeolite, such as Na-mordenite, Na-ZSM-5, Na-USY (USY: ultrastable Y type zeolite), or metallosilicates (zeolite whose aluminum is partly or wholly replaced with another metallic element, especially iron, gallium, zinc, lanthanum, copper, molybdenum, chromium, germanium, titanium, boron, etc.), with an aqueous solution of an ammonium salt (e.g., ammonium sulfate) or an acid (e.g., sulfuric acid) to exchange a part of or the whole of the alkali metal of the zeolite for an ammonium ion or a hydrogen ion. In the case where the alkali metal is exchanged for an ammonium ion, the product finally requires calcining.

Examples of the zeolite type solid acid carrier include an acid type mordenite, which is obtained by an acid treatment of mordenite type zeolite of the following formula:

M.sub.2 ((AlO.sub.2).sub.2±r (SiO.sub.2).sub.10).ZH.sub.2 O

(wherein M represents an alkali metal ion; r is a number subject to variation depending on the conditions of zeolite synthesis, with the SiO2 /Al2 O3 molar ratio ranging from 13 to 40 and the SiO2 /H2 O molar ratio ranging from 25 to 200).

Other examples of the zeolite type solid acid carrier include a zeolite, which is obtained by exchanging a part of or the whole of ion M of zeolite of the following formula for a lanthanum ion (La3+), a gallium ion (Ga3+), a cerium ion (Ce4+), a titanium ion (Ti4+), a zirconium ion (Zr4+), a tin ion (Sn4+), etc.:

M'.sub.A ((AlO.sub.2).sub.p (SiO.sub.2).sub.q).Z'H.sub.2 O

(wherein M' represents an alkali metal ion, an alkaline earth metal, or a hydrogen ion; nA=P (wherein n is a valence number of ion M'); and q/p is 5 or more).

The oxide type solid acid carriers include single metal oxides such as Al2 O3, TiO2, TiO2 /SO4 2-, ZrO2,and ZrO2 /SO4 2-, and complex oxides such as SiO2 /Al2 O3, TiO2 /Al2 O3, and TiO2 /ZrO2. From the standpoint of heat resistance, preferred of them are Al2 O3, ZrO2, and SiO2 /Al2 O3.

Usable solid acid carriers further include a crystalline aluminum phosphate (hereinafter abbreviated as ALPO) having a zeolite-like porous structure or a lamellar structure and its analogues (hereinafter inclusively referred to as ALPO type phosphates), such as a crystalline silicoaluminum phosphate (hereinafter abbreviated as SAPO) and a crystalline metalloaluminum phosphate (hereinafter abbreviated as MAPO) obtained by displacing part of phosphorus or phosphorus-aluminum of ALPO with a metal, e.g., titanium, iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, cobalt.

The ALPO type phosphates can be prepared by a hydrothermal process using a raw material comprising the above-mentioned phosphorus source, a metal source, and an appropriate component selected from silica, silica sol, sodium silicate, etc., having mixed therewith a so-called template, e.g., an amine and a quaternary ammonium compound. The conditions for the ALPO type phosphate synthesis are similar to zeolite synthesis. A main difference therebetween consists in that the former is synthesized in a pH acidic condition in higher temperatures (usually 150° C. or higher) than those employed for the latter.

The composition of the ALPO type phosphates is generally represented by Al2 O3.(0.8-1.2).P2 O5.nH2 O . In SAPO or MAPO, the amount of phosphorus and/or aluminum to be displaced with silica or a metal is about 1/10 the total amount aluminum and phosphorus at the highest. SAPO or MAPO whose silica or metal content is out of this range, i.e., those containing an amorphous may also be employable in the present invention.

Where an ALPO type phosphate obtained by a hydrothermal process is used as a carrier, the synthetic product is usually washed with water, dried, and calcined in air to remove the remaining template.

The cerium oxide used in the present invention can be obtained by calcining cerium hydroxide (Ce(OH)3), cerium nitrate (Ce(NO3)3), cerium acetate (Ce(CH3 COO)3), etc., in air or under an oxygen atmosphere.

In the following, the elements belonging to group (a) are exemplified. Examples of the Group Ib elements include, e.g., Cu, Ag, Au. Examples of the Group IIa elements include, e.g., Mg, Ca, Sr. Examples of the Group IIb elements include, e.g., Zn. Examples of the Group IIIa elements include, e.g., Y, La, Nd, Cd. Examples of the Group IIIb elements include, e.g., Al, Ga. Examples of the Group IVa elements include, e.g., Ti, Zr. Examples of the Group IVb elements include, e.g., Ge, Sn. Examples of the Group Va elements include, e.g., V, Nb. Examples of the Group VIa elements include, e.g., Cr, Mo. Examples of the Group VIIa elements include, e.g., manganese. Examples of the Group VIII elements include, e.g., Fe, Co, Ni, Ru, Rh, Pd, Ir, Pt.

In the catalyst of the present invention, these elements can be incorporated as a metal, its ion or its oxide.

The catalyst according to the present invention can be prepared by the following process (1), (2) or (3).

Process (1):

A water-soluble salt (e.g., nitrate) of cerium or an alcohol solution of an alkoxide of cerium is poured into a slurry dispersed therein a solid acid carrier, and the slurry is neutralized or hydrolyzed to form a precipitate. Otherwise, a precursor of cerium oxide such as a hydroxide. compound of cerium is supported on the solid acid carrier according to a spray dry method or a freeze-drying method. The resulting solid is worked up by repeatedly subjecting to filtration, washing with water, and repulping, and then dried and calcined.

Next, in cases of applying the elements belonging to group (a), a metal, its ion or its oxide of the elements is supported on the solid acid carrier according to a well known method such as an impregnation method and an ion exchange method.

Process (2):

A solid acid carrier and a separately prepared cerium oxide are thoroughly wet ground by means of a planetary mill, etc.

In cases of applying the elements belonging to group (a), a metal, its ion or its oxide of the elements is previously supported on a cerium oxide, then the resulting product is thoroughly wet ground with a solid acid carrier by means of a planetary mill, etc.

Process (3):

A precursor of a solid acid carrier, such as a water-soluble salt or a hydroxide, and a water-soluble salt (e.g., nitrate) of cerium or an alcohol solution of an alkoxide of cerium are uniformly mixed, and the resulting homogeneous solution is neutralized or hydrolyzed to form a precipitate. The precipitate is worked up by repeatedly subjecting to filtration, washing with water, and repulping, and then dried and calcined.

Next, in cases of applying the elements belonging to group (a), a metal, its ion or its oxide of the elements is supported on the solid acid carrier according to a well known method such as an impregnation method, an ion exchange method, and a deposition method.

In some cases of applying the elements belonging to group (a), the catalyst according to the present invention is preferably obtained by supporting a cerium oxide on an solid acid carrier by an impregnation method, a deposition method, etc., then highly dispersing and supporting thereon an ion of the elements by an ion exchange method, optionally followed by calcination under an acidic atmosphere. The resulting catalyst may be reduced by using hydrogen, etc.

In the catalyst according to the present invention, the suitable cerium oxide supporting ratio is 5 to 80% by weight based on the total amount of the cerium oxide and the solid acid carrier. Hereinafter, the cerium oxide supporting ratio means the weight ratio (%) of (the amount of the cerium oxide) to (the total amount of the cerium oxide and the solid acid carrier). If the cerium oxide supporting ratio exceeds 80% by weight, no further effect is expected. Besides, consumption of the hydrocarbon or oxygen-containing organic compound by oxygen would be increased in a reaction system containing oxygen. On the other hand, if the cerium oxide supporting ratio is less than 5% by weight, the reducing activity of the catalyst cannot be increased as expected. In particular, it is preferred that the cerium oxide supporting ratio be 20 to 50% by weight. If the cerium oxide supporting ratio is within the preferred range, it provides excellent properties of which the SV dependency of the catalytic reduction reaction of nitrogen oxides is extremely small.

In the catalyst according to the present invention, the elements belonging to group (a) are supported in the form of a metal, its ion or its oxide. The supporting ratio thereof is 0.01 to 50%, preferably 0.02 to 20% by weight in terms of metal. Hereinafter, the supporting ratio of the elements belonging to group (a) means the weight ratio of (the amount of the elements belonging to group (a)) in terms of metal to (the total amount of the solid acid carrier, the metal, its ion or its oxide of the elements belonging to group (a), and the cerium oxide).

If the cerium oxide and/or the elements belonging to group (a) is/are supported in the above mentioned supporting ratio(s), any of the above components function as sites of activation by adsorption to hydrocarbon or as sites of activation to nitrogen oxides so that the catalytic reaction proceeds selectively. Thus, it is considered that the catalyst according to the present invention exhibits a high activity and selectivity over a wide range in a catalytic reduction reaction of nitrogen oxides using a hydrocarbon as a reducing agent.

The catalyst according to the present invention may be shaped into various shapes such as honeycomb and sphere by any of well known shaping methods. If desired, appropriate additives, such as shaping assistants, reinforcements, inorganic fibers, and organic binders, may be used on shaping. The catalyst may be coated on a previously molded inactive base by, for example, a wash coat method. For example, the catalyst can be coated on a honeycomb structural product made of clay such as cordierite as the base. Any of known catalyst preparation techniques may be applied.

The hydrocarbons which can be used as a reducing agent in the present invention include gases such as hydrocarbon gas (e.g., methane, ethane, propane, propylene, butylene); and liquids such as unitary hydrocarbon (e.g., pentane, hexane, octane, heptane, benzene, toluene, xylene) and mineral oil hydrocarbon (e.g., gasoline, kerosine, gas oil, heavy oil). In the present invention, among these reducing agents, lower alkynes such as acetylene, methylacetylene and 1-butyne, lower alkenes such as ethylene, propylene, isobutylene, 1-butene and 2-butene, lower dienes such as butadiene and isoprene, and lower alkanes such as propane and butane are preferably used. These hydrocarbons may be used singly or in combination as necessary.

The oxygen-containing organic compounds which can be used as a reducing agent in the present invention include, for example, alcohols such as methanol, ethanol, propanol, and octanol, ethers such as dimethyl ether, diethyl ether, and dipropyl ether, carboxylates such as methyl acetate, ethyl acetate and fats and oils, and ketones such as acetone and methyl ethyl ketone. These are preferred but non-limiting examples. These oxygen-containing organic compounds may be used singly or in combination as necessary. The hydrocarbons and the oxygen-containing organic compounds may be used in combination.

The amount of the hydrocarbon or the oxygen-containing organic compound to be used as a reducing agent, though varying depending on its kind, is normally from 0.1 to 2 mols per mol of nitrogen oxides. If the reducing agent molar ratio falls below 0.1, sufficient reducing activity cannot be obtained with respect to nitrogen oxides. On the contrary, if the reducing agent molar ratio exceeds 2, the amount of the hydrocarbon or the oxygen-containing organic compound which is withdrawn as being unreacted increases, requiring some post treatment for recovery of the unreacted hydrocarbon or oxygen-containing organic compound after the catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxides.

In addition, uncombusted matters or incomplete combustion products of fuels, etc. present in emissions, i.e., hydrocarbons and particulate matters, are also effective as a reducing agent and, accordingly, included in the term "hydrocarbons" as used herein. In other words, the catalyst of the present invention is deemed useful for removal or reduction of the hydrocarbons or particulate matters of emissions.

The temperature at which the above-mentioned reducing agent selectively reduces nitrogen oxides ascends in the order of oxygen-containing organic compounds, alkynes, alkenes, aromatic hydrocarbons, and alkanes. The greater the carbon atom number of hydrocarbons, the lower the effective temperature.

A suitable temperature for the catalyst of the present invention to show catalysis in reduction of nitrogen oxides usually ranges from 100° to 800° C., and preferably 200° to 500° C., though varying depending on the kind of the reducing agent or catalyst species used. Within the above recited temperature range, exhaust gas to be treated is preferably made to flow at a space velocity (SV) of from 500 to 100,000 hr-1.

The present invention will be further described in the following examples, but the present invention should not be construed as being limited thereto.

EXAMPLE A-1

8.0 g of cerium nitrate (Ce(NO3)3.6H2 O) was dissolved in 100 ml of ion-exchanged water. Into the solution was put 60 g of H type mordenite powder ("HM-23" produced by Nippon kagaku Co., Ltd.) which had been previously dried at 120° C. for 24 hours. Thereto, 1/10 N aqueous ammonia was added dropwise under stirring with adjusting a pH using a pH controller which had been set a pH of 8. After the dropwise addition, the resulting solution was ripened for 1 hour to deposit and support cerium hydroxide on the H-type mordenite.
